Time flies

Category: Journal

Wow it is soo crazy but time passes by so fast around here. Between work, play, kids new position and everything else in-between thing just get crazy. This is very evident in the fact that I never seem to be able to get around to updating this blog. 

Well aside from everything being so crazy around here things have been pretty good aside from the added stress I have from work. We have been doing a lot of new things and well the work load is a little insane right now. Hopefully we will come back to some level of sanity soon. 

Okay so let me see what has all gone one around here. Well I have been trying to make good use of being able to go out with my parents early Saturday mornings and water skiing. Mostly it has been barefooting, surfing and wakeboarding for me. I have to say it has been a lot of fun and is really relaxing to just even be on the water no matter how early or cold the mornings are. And Naomi has been so generous to allow me to go out. Thanks babe! Here are some great pics of thoose days and and awesome one of Tyler wakeboarding.

We have been making great use of our new deck. Tristan loves to eat berries out there in the evenging and well Rhys just likes to sleep as usually, although lately he is one smiley kid and is getting the nickname of smiley. We did manage to get an awesome night out on the deck having ice cream cake and Mackitos (mojitos) for my mother in law's 60th B-day.

One really cool thing I did get to do was help out Ginny with the party she planned for a client of her's. This was no ordinary party as the budget was very high and man wow did she ever do an awesome job. Anyways more to the point she hired me to do henna tattoos for the party and it was a great time especially as it was my first job doing it. I have to say was very happy with the results and would love to do it again some time. Especially as it is good money and I could use some extra to buy a new computer. I only got these few pics of the tattoos and of course of my main man Craig as he was the DJ for the event.

Seattle trip asside we have really been scarce on the blog post. Guess we are really busy running around having fun, no seriously we actually are. Of course i am even busier now that i have been promoted to Game Manager at work. I am still figuring out what all that means, but so far it has amouted to a lot more work — yikes! 

Let's see – we have been making good use of our new deck and loving it with all the extra space. It was well worth the money and time we put into it. We have been trying to get down to the lake as often as we can although that is a little harder now with 2 kids in tow. Tristan loves playing in the pool that we set up for him and well Rhys just sleeps.

Just this weekend there was the annual Alvez BBQ and well no one eats like the Portueguese! Thanks Suzy for the awesome food. And just a few weeks ago Naomi's cousins Mel, Joel and Jose came and gave us a visit. It was really great to spend some time with them as families.

To end this all off we just had our 1st year annivesary at work of joining the Disney family in which we all dressed as our favourite Disney characters. Of course we went with what we had available to us and that was these nifty peter pan costumes with the boys as the lost boys. Can everyone say awwwwww! And through it all Rhys just keeps growing and growing with smiles here and there that we can never seem to get on camera.
